Easy in Washington DC
What voice problems? What cold? In 'Baby' WLL, his voice was back on show in its full magnificence, powerbelting out those extended high notes with ease. Adam's hair has been looking fluffier and tuftier as it's been growing out, reminding me of the final Upright performances. From what I can gather of Starlight and MW, he sailed through them flawlessly and there were plenty of smiles all around during Slow Ride. I particularly liked his dismissive expression during 'Look at those cavemen go' in the Bowie medley as he injected more drama and attitude to Life On Mars. He swooped down to pick up and fling yet another bra, magenta this time, into the audience and those hips really went for it. In this recording, I love the timbre of his voice as there seems to be a little more rock grit to his belts, and I'm happy he didn't seem to hold back.
